“And through your faith, God is protecting you by His power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.” – 1 Peter 1:5 

As a believer in Christ, you are not your own. Your identity is found in Him. 

He bought us! We belong to Him and therefore, our identity should be in Him. We don’t have the privilege of redefining the things that God clearly defines in His word, and in today’s key passage, He clearly said to those who truly believe, and those who have been transformed that your identity is IN CHRIST. 

That’s WHO YOU ARE! And what that means is if you have been saved by Christ, you’ve been given a new, permanent identity that cannot be removed, messed up, taken away, or changed. 

Did you catch that? There is nothing you can do to lose that identity. When you accept Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, He marks your name in the Lamb’s Book of Life. And that can never be reversed. That means that your identity is not just in Him now, but FOREVER.  

That means there is nothing you or anyone else can do to change that. You only have to accept Him once, and you are HIS permanently. That is what separates Christianity from nearly every other religion. It is not performance-based. Your identity is not something that comes and goes. 

It is not like the stock market where it is up one day and down the next. You never have to guess where you stand with God. We have spent the last few days talking about your identity, and how when you are saved, it is found in your Lord and Savior. But it’s not just found there for now or for a little while.  

You are His. And that is permanent for the rest of time!
